St Bernard’s Avenue in Louth is set for a full repair by Lincolnshire County Council starting on Wednesday.

The county council have announced that the work which will repair ‘most of the road at once’ will take nine days from March 20 to 29.

The road has been patched up in recent weeks after the cold weather left it littered with potholes and cracks but it has now been decided that a full repair is the best way forward.

Dean Myhill, area highways manager, said: “We have to use specialist equipment and techniques to repair St Bernard’s Avenue as it is an old concrete road.

“To get the vest value for money for the taxpayer and to cause minimum disruption to motorists, we are repairing most of the road at once.

“I’m sure that these improvements to St Bernard’s Avenue in Louth will make a big difference to motorists who use this road, we would like to thank residents for bearing with us.”

Speaking at the Louth Town Council meeting on March 12, Councillor Eileen Ballard described the road as being in a ‘bad way’.

“This work really is urgent,” added Coun Margaret Ottaway.

A diversion route will be signposted for motorists.
